Divorce...Step by Step

 

Is saying "I'm Sorry" enough?

A relationship involves several levels of conflict. Is saying "I'm sorry" enough?

There are no better words spoken to a wife, husband, friend, or significant other when there is turmoil in a relationship like "I'm sorry," but is that enough?

"I'm sorry" has been, and always' will be, the beginning of an admission that you were wrong or you have done something that really hurt someone. Saying "I'm sorry" is a way of trying to make the situation better.

Proper ways to say "I'm sorry" include:

  • Speaking from the heart
  • Saying "I'm sorry" at the appropriate time
  • Respecting the other person's privacy while admitting you're wrong
  • Giving an appropriate gift along with the words, "I'm sorry"
  • Saying you're sorry with no strings attached. Such as, "I'm sorry," but....

Is saying "I'm sorry" enough?

It depends on how many times you have said you're sorry for the same situation. Are you repeating the same offenses that propel you to say you're sorry? If this is the problem, then saying "I'm sorry" is not enough.

Saying "I'm sorry" repeatedly becomes an excuse for what you're doing wrong. It is not an admission of guilt. It is not the answer a person is looking for when they are hurt or their feelings are betrayed.

Suggestions on how to solve this problem:

  • Seek counseling
  • Avoid circumstances that put you in the situation from the beginning
  • Trust your own instincts or behavior
  • Know what's right and what's wrong
  • Be honest in your relationship

Saying "I'm sorry" should always represent you in an honest way. Saying "I'm sorry" is an essential way of starting all over where there is hurt and betrayal. If you say the words "I'm sorry" from the heart, it will be enough.
